FADE
Riders on horseback cross the desert. From this distance they appear to be a company of Army Cavalry Soldiers.
CLOSER ANGLES ON THE RIDERS
IN:
Reveal only details of saddles, hooves and uniforms. The riders are silhouetted against the rising sun as they ride into an ancient CLIFF PUEBLO.
The OFFICER IN COMMAND raises his hand halting his troops.
OFFICER Dismount!
RIDERS climb down from their mounts... and only now do we realize that this is a TROOP OF BOY SCOUTS, all of them about thirteen years of age. The "Commanding Officer" is only their SCOUTMASTER, Mr. Havelock.
One of the Scouts, a pudgy kid named HERMAN, steps away from his horse, bends over and pukes. The other Scouts rag on him.
FIRST SCOUT Herman’s horsesick!
A BLOND SCOUT, however, befriends Herman. He has a thatch of strawcolored hair and the nononsense expression common to kids whose curiosity and appetite for knowledge exceed what they teach in school. Additionally, he has adorned his uniform with an authentic HOPI INDIAN WOVEN BELT.

SCOUTMASTER Chaps, don’t anybody wander off. Some of the passageways in here can run for miles.
Scouts climb up the rocky base of the cliff.
INT. THE PASSAGEWAY  DAY
2.
The two boys head down the passageway. It’s dark, and the temperature drops several degrees. Spiders have built huge webs that get caught in the boys’ hair.
Herman appears very uncertain as to the wisdom of this enterprise, but he’s drawn on by his companion’s adventurous curiosity.
HERMAN I don’t think this is such a idea.
good
LAUGHTER is HEARD; the Blond Scout pulls Herman forward toward its source.
The VOICES GROW LOUDER now as the boys get closer to their source. The light of kerosene lanterns dances on the tunnel walls ahead. The boys approach cautiously, careful to stay hidden.
HERMAN What is it?
This is what they see:
FOUR MEN digging with shovels and pickaxes. They have broken into one of the pueblo’s SECRET CHAMBERS... called "Kivas."
The men are ROUGH RIDER (his name describes his dress), ROSCOE (a Bowery Boy bully of 14) and HALFBREED (with straight black hair that cascades over his shoulders).
And the fourth man wears a LEATHER WAIST JACKET and BROWN FELT FEDORA HAT. He has his back turned to us, but we would be willing to bet anything that this is INDIANA JONES.
However, when the man turns, and his face is illuminated by the lantern’s glow, we are shocked to discover that it is someone else.
We’ll call him FEDORA.
TITLES END
The TWO BOYS are mesmerized by what they see.
Now we realize that the Blond Scout is actually INDIANA JONES.

Indy matteroffactly picks up the snake and tosses it aside. Herman gasps.

Herman doesn’t seem to be listening. Instead, he watches wideeyed horror as a SNAKE SLITHERS ACROSS HIS LAP.
A look of resolve comes into Indy’s expression, and back toward Herman

Indy turns back to observe the men.
Fedora continues to admire the Cross, then places rock next to its box and the lantern.
INDY (hushed; urgent) It’s the Cross of Coronado! Cortes gave it to him in 1521.
Indy stays hidden, but is astounded by what he sees.

HALFBREED Hey, we got to find more stuff to bring back.
Fedora blows dust from the Cross, turning it in his hand, silently appraising its beauty... and its value. He seems aloof from the others; somehow superior to them.

Indy releases the scarf, gives Herman a pat and Herman dashes off. Indy sees the Cross on the rock next to the lantern. As the Robbers continue to search for additional valuables, Indy is able to work his way unseen to within arm’s reach of the Cross...
Fedora looks over at the men digging

Indy picks up the Cross.

As Fedora stands watching the other men digging, Indy puts the Cross in his pants and begins to pull himself up a rope hanging nearby. As he climbs, Indy’s feet break a wooden beam, attracting the men’s attention.
ROSCOE He’s got our thing!
HALFBREED Get ’im!
The three Robbers are so eager to get their hands on Indy, they almost knock each other over in the attempt.
Only Fedora is unperturbed. He casts a disgusted glance in the direction of his fleeing companions  then sets off after Indy.

Indy EMERGES from the darkness of the Pueblo into brightness of day.
He pauses  squints  shields his eyes  looks directions.

Indy jumps from one rock to another; the SCOUT TROOP HORSES are below. Indy puts two fingers in his mouth and WHISTLES for his horse, who trots over. Indy puts the Cross in his belt.
Indy PREPARES TO JUMP into the saddle. Hesitates. Then... he JUMPS. But the horse moves exactly at the wrong moment and Indy lands flat on his feet in a standing position. The impact sends a shock wave up his body that rattles his back teeth. Indy stands up and successfully mounts his horse.
Fedora AND HIS MEN ARRIVE at the roof’s edge in time to see Indy climb into the saddle and gallop off.
INDY Hyah! Hyah!
ROSCOE Hey! Come back here!
Fedora puts two fingers in his mouth and WHISTLES... and a VINTAGE TRUCK AND AUTOMOBILE come ROARING OUT from behind the Pueblo (driven by two more gang members). Now we glimpse...
THE MAN IN THE PANAMA HAT
The passenger in the car. His face is concealed by the hat’s wide brim. His arm is out the window, however, and we see an olivecolored hand protruding from the sleeve of an expensive white linen suit. He gestures to the Robbers, now in the truck.
Indy only it.
PANAMA HAT Come on. Get him!
SPURS his mount on to greater speeds but the autos not keep pace with his horse... they begin to squeeze in on
Speeding Autos. Thundering hooves. Rushing wind. Flying dust. Indy crouched low and leaning forward in the saddle, his heart pounding, his adrenaline pumping.

7.
The train is barreling down the track. Indy rides up beside it. He glances over his shoulder and sees the car and truck gaining on him. No other choice... he LEAPS FROM HORSE TO TRAIN.
He clings to the side of a BOXCAR, as Halfbreed and Rough Rider leap from the truck onto the train.
Halfbreed tries to grab Indy, but Indy leaps onto another boxcar. Halfbreed runs after him but Indy leaps from the boxcar onto some covered boxes stacked on a flatcar.
Indy loses his balance but regains it. With Halfbreed and Rough Rider still running after him, Indy enters the trap door of...

and finds himself CRAWLING on a CATWALK suspended from the car’s ceiling. Several feet below are NUMEROUS VATS containing all manner of reptiles: Alligators, crocodiles, giant lizards, etc.
Then, Halfbreed ENTERS through the trap door  followed by Rough Rider. Halfbreed grabs hold of Indy’s feet, but Indy kicks at him and he loses his grasp.
Indy crawls away, toward an opening on the opposite side. Halfbreed grabs at Indy’s feet again; Indy rolls away and SEE large bins of squirming snakes.
The combined weight of the three people is more than the catwalk was intended for, and the BOLTS BEGIN TO RIP FROM THE CEILING.

Everyone holds their breath, afraid to make another move. Too late. SEVERAL BOLTS TEAR FREE. Halfbreed and Rough Rider SCREAM... but it’s Indy’s end of the catwalk that DROPS DOWN... PLUNGING Indy to the floor of the car.
He lands hard, with a SPLASH into a finds himself eyetoeye with an 

Indy jumps back in horror... only to land with a SQUISH into the SNAKE VAT.
INDY Oh... Oh...
Hundreds of slippery, squirming snakes. Indy sinks into them. They cover him. Engulf him. Almost smother him.
Indy jumps out of the side of the vat, freeing himself.
Indy locates a cleanout door at the bottom of the car and uses it to escape.
Halfbreed, meanwhile, tries to open the closed window car. He groans. Rough Rider moves to assist him.
ROUGH RIDER Here, let me.

Indy stops, checks to see the Cross still lodged in his belt. Suddenly he looks worried as he frantically reaches into his shirt, REMOVES A SNAKE FROM IT and tosses it away.
Roscoe APPEARS atop the reptile car and manages to grab Indy. Indy kicks at him. Roscoe grabs onto the side of the reptile car as Indy moves on to...
EXT. A FLATCAR  DAY
Indy climbs over canvascovered circus equipment. Roscoe follows, grabbing a long stick with a hook on it. He reaches forward and trips Indy, who falls onto the roof of the rhino boxcar.
INT. THE RHINO BOXCAR  DAY
As a lamp falls from the ceiling with the impact of Indy’s fall, hitting a HUGE BLACK RHINOCEROS.
EXT. THE RHINO BOXCAR  DAY
Roscoe grabs Indy by the ankle and yanks him off his feet. The two struggle, rolling from side to side, coming perilously close to rolling right off the edge. Things get even more serious when Roscoe PULLS A KNIFE.
IN THE BOXCAR BELOW
...THE FEROCIOUS BLACK RHINO is becoming extremely agitated by the commotion going on atop his cage. Finally, he raises his head and THRUSTS HIS HORN THROUGH THE ROOF.
BACK
TO THE ROOFTOP
9.
As the horn SMASHES through the wood only inches from Indy’s head. Indy and Roscoe stare at the horn in amazement as they continue to struggle. SMASH! The horn comes up again  RIGHT BETWEEN INDY’S LEGS.
INDY Holy smokes!
Indy kicks Roscoe away. Roscoe rolls to the edge of the car but keeps from falling. Indy flips over onto his stomach.
EXT. THE REPTILE CAR  DAY
The WOODEN TRAP DOOR EXPLODES as a BULLET is FIRED from within. The door is pushed open and Halfbreed and Rough Rider hurry out of the car.
EXT. THE RHINO BOXCAR  DAY
Indy gets to his feet  looks ahead  sees a WATER TANK alongside the track directly up ahead. Indy gets an idea...
In an instant, he calculates his approach  times the distance  and LEAPS for the tank’s WATER SPOUT.
He catches it perfectly... but his velocity causes the water spout to ROTATE A FULL 360 DEGREES. With Indy hanging on, feet kicking, the water spout deposits him back on the train, onto the ROOF OF A STOCKCAR, where he looks up to see Fedora walking toward him.
FEDORA Come on, kid. There’s no way out of this.
As Indy edges away from Fedora, a portion of the STOCKCAR’S ROOF COLLAPSES and Indy FALLS THROUGH into the car below.
INT. THE STOCKCAR  DAY
Indy
CRASHES down from above.
Ohhh!
INDY
Dust rises.
Indy’s eyes take a moment to adjust to the dark. A bit of sunlight leaks in through the cracks between the boards.
Then Indy sees it. At the far end of the boxcar. Rising slowly to its feet... an AFRICAN LION. The Lion ROARS. The boxcar walls shake. Indy gasps. Dust swirls up into the shafts of sunlight.
10.
And Indy has one more surprise in store: The Cross of Cortes has been dislodged from his belt during the fall...
Indy glances around, sees a coiled LION TAMER’S WHIP hanging on a nail. He carefully takes it down by the handle. The Lion sees this and GROWLS SOFTLY.
Indy swallows hard and gives the whip a try. It unravels awkwardly, its TIP flying back and HITTING Indy IN THE FACE... CUTTING his chin.
The Lion GROWLS LOUDER. Indy quickly gathers up the whip, wets his lips, and tries again. This time  success! The WHIP CRACKS SHARPLY. The Lion BELLOWS and SWATS the air... and steps back.
Indy looks amazed and delighted. He CRACKS the whip again. The Lion backs away even more. Indy inches forward  bends down (never taking his eyes off the Lion)  picks up the Cross  and steps back again, sweat pouring down his face.
But now... how to get out?
He looks up at the opening through which he fell and sees Fedora LOOKING DOWN AT HIM. Fedora extends his hand.
FEDORA Toss up the whip.
EXT. THE ROOFTOP OF STOCKCAR
Fedora, assisted by Halfbreed and Rough Rider, "reels" Indy out of the Stockcar as the Lion ROARS and lunges and Indy screams.
The men, including Roscoe, pull Indy through the hole in the roof. He stands to face them as Rough Rider points a gun in his direction. FEDORA You’ve got heart, kid. (indicates Cross) But that belongs to me.
INDY (takes Cross from his belt) It belongs to Coronado. FEDORA (overlapping) Coronado is dead. And so are all his grandchildren.
